FTDI Drivers

PLEASE NOTE - When updating drivers, refer to the following document: AN_107 - Advanced Driver Options

Drivers are available which allow FTDI devices to work with the following operating systems:

  • Windows Server 2008 R2
  • Windows 7
  • Windows 7 x64
  • Windows Server 2008
  • Windows Server 2008 x64
  • Windows Vista
  • Windows Vista x64
  • Windows Server 2003
  • Windows Server 2003 x64
  • Windows XP
  • Windows XP x64
  • Windows 2000

  • Windows 8
  • Windows 98
  • Linux
  • Mac OS X
  • Mac OS 9
  • Mac OS 8
  • Windows CE.NET (Version 4.2 and greater)

For most of these operating systems two types of driver are available: Virtual COM Port (VCP) drivers and direct (D2XX) drivers. The VCP driver emulates a standard PC serial port such that the USB device may be communicated with as a standard RS232 device. The D2XX driver allows direct access to a USB device via a DLL interface.

To locate the drivers you want to install for a device, select which of the driver types you wish to use (VCP or D2XX) and then locate the appropriate operating systems. With the exception of Windows 98 and Windows ME, all devices are supported in each driver package.
